Russell Crowe gets aid from Coast Guard during kayak outing |

By Lorena Blas, USA TODAY
Oscar winner Russell Crowe got a little help from some friends at the U.S. Coast Guard over the Labor Day weekend.
The 48-year-old actor went kayaking with a pal off Cold Spring Harbor on the Long Island Sound on Saturday afternoon when they got lost, according to the Associated Press.
As night fell, the two lost their way and headed for shore, eventually beaching their kayaks about 10 miles away from where they set out, the AP reports.
The Coast Guard was patrolling the area, and heard Crowe call out to them from the shore around 10 p.m. local time, U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Robert Swieciki told the AP, adding that the Gladiator actor, whom Swieciki "didn't recognize," and Crowe's friend paddled over to the boat. The Coast Guard officers pulled them up and, along with their kayaks, gave them a ride to Huntington Harbor, AP says.
Crowe, who is in the area filming a movie called Noah set for release in 2014, later sent a shout-out to the Coast Guard members who assisted him and his friend. He tweeted on Sunday:
Kayak;Cold Spring/Huntington Harbour, thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way...4 hrs 30 mins, 7m(11.2km)
